Isn't this a relative of the 1200 (5300?) and 4100? As long as you
running a recent SRM prom I don't think you will have any problems
getting NetBSD booted. I don't know about being able to address
all 6 processors, but I know Jason got a dual AS1200 booted multiuser
nearly a year ago.
I've had 1.5ZA running on a test dual processor AS1200 for several
months and feels stable for the most part .. though it hardly has
any sort of load on it.
I did run into a problem when I was building current userland, but
that wasn't kernel related.
